Awesome! I think that looks good. What do you think of the game so far? Also what settings are you running at?

I run at the settings that are in my last bench. 1920x1200...

The game is awesome! Great graphics, great sound, good performance (well programmed game). A lot of things can be destroyed or set on fire.

A lot of innovative gameplay features... Exploding ammo (if you set ammo on fire, you cant use it anymore, because it all explodes), trees can be destroyed, houses/ huts blown up...

It rocks!!!

And I must say it runs really good on a (1!!!) HD4870X2. And the game runs better @ DX10 then it does @ DX9. First game ever that runs better @ DX10.
